Has anyone tried using their Turbo with another Provider other than VZW? Is it possible?
So how would you do that ? It's a locked down Verizon phone .
I believe all Verizon phones are required by the FCC to be unlocked. I remember there was a post by someone on this forum that used a T-Mobile sim, however when that person put their Verizon sim back it, things screwed up. But I've seen a few times that the Turbo does work on T-Mobile, but I believe only on Band 4.
Edit: I think Band 2 also.
I've seen a turbo on T-Mobile... One..but other than that..the radios are really not great for other carriers..
I checked to see if my turbo would work on some other carriers and they said it wouldn't.
My Droid Turbo works fine here in Norway. All you gotta do is check the phone specs, find the frequenzces and find out which providers use those frequencies.
I spent last week in Canada and the Turbo worked perfectly fine on the Rogers network, GSM for voice and HSPA+ for data.
I saw icons on the notification bar I had never seen before .
When I was in Canada over the summer, I loved roaming. I felt it was better than Verizon. LTE on Rogers, Bell, and Telus was incredibly fast, and H+ was still for the most part faster than Verizon LTE, and most definitely faster than Verizon 3G.
I tried making it a "game" to stay on one provider for the whole day, and it was very reliable.
I have read here that all Verizon phones come unlocked in the box.
Yup. As long as the device supports the frequencies of the carrier chosen, it's good to go. Most (if not all) newer Verizon phones have Band 4 which will work on T-Mobile because of their Band 4 use, and I think (not entirely sure) most of their GSM frequencies.
However a Verizon specific device on T-Mobile will usually lack Band 2 and Band 12, which is a big part of having the best coverage and usability on their network
